A sweet single track that winds through the forests above Big Bear. Views are limited to the nearby trees on the lower portions of the trail, but open up as you reach the ridgeline and Grandview point. Great hike or bike. For an easier biking effort, ride the FS roads up or take the Sky Chair and bomb down.

The Pineknot Trail begins at the Aspen Glen Picnic Area and climbs south until it reaches the aptly named Grand View Point, altitude 7,784 feet. For the first 1 ½ miles the hiker shares the trail with equestrian and mountain bike traffic, while they wind their way up through stands of white fir and Jeffrey pine. Serious hikers make the 6 mile round trip in 3 hours of less, while a family who plans to picnic at Grand View Point should plan on spending half the day to leisurely enjoy the forest, the mountains and a great view of Big Bear Lake.
